Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-6915) Show storage rows in cqlsh
Date Mon, 24 Mar 2014 14:03:46 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-6915:

Maybe reasonable: group partitions with whitespace in between, for compound primary keys.
 OTOH I don't see that this adds a whole ton of value, particularly since most queries are

Not reasonable: "a function in cqlsh to emulate the cli"

In the end I think it's a pipe dream to save people from reading the docs.  I also reject
the contention that it's "super important" for most users to understand all the storage-level
details of (for instance) WITH COMPACT STORAGE.

So unless you have a better idea for information to show in cqlsh that is both relevant and
unintrusive I think we should Notaproblem this.

> In Cassandra it's super important to understand how your CQL schema translates to the
underlying storage rows.  Right now the only way to see this is to create the schema in cqlsh,
write some data, then query it using the CLI.  Obviously we don't want to be encouraging people
to use the CLI when it's supposed to be deprecated.  So I'd like to see a function in cqlsh
to do this.
